    I am new to Mac computers and I have a new MacBook Pro and use a Fujitsu ScanSnap S1300i. The software that comes with it is ok but would like to have a better file management software to keep scans organized.

    Does anyone here use a Fujitsu Scanner and have software suggestions?

    Here is an option VueScan Link

    Great generic scanning software - I don't use it to organize scans but it is fast and very easy to use.

    I've been using Fujitsu ScanSnap for many years. I use Yep! for file management. Yep! uses keywords tags that you define to track and recall files and documents. I highly recommend Yep!

    DEVONThink is pretty much the gold standard when it comes to document management on the Mac, and it integrates very nicely with ScanSnap scanners. Has some pretty advanced capabilities, including auto tagging/filing of documents based on their content. There's also an iPad/iPhone version, and you can sync documents between them, etc.

    Can't recommend it highly enough!

    I will have to look at that. It looks like some good software. I am thinking I would need the pro version to do OCR and making searchable files.....

    Take a look at the work by David Sparks.

    He works with Hazel and other scripting options to intelligently sort and archive scans from his ScanSnap scanner.

    Try EagleFiler. It will work with ScanSnap scanners. $40 and well worth it; it keeps your documents in their native formats and structure. Faster searching than Spotlight.
